I tend to spend a lot of my time up at our local reservoir walking my dog and watching the wildlife there. I am particularly interested in the deer there and my dog "Harley" (A whippet cross lurcher) knows that when we are up there he has to behave and not pull, especially of I have my camera in my hand. My camera of choice when I go there is my Canon SX50 as it is light and easy to carry and has such an extensive zoom that it covers me for very close up work or for longer distance photos of birds or deer even though I might not have as much control as with my DSLRs.
I came across this girl in the margins of the woods where several people had just passed with their dogs and not seen her. I am quite pleased with the photos but I would welcome your thoughts:

Not too bad. I find the background a little busy but I do like how you framed the deer with the two trees in the foreground.

Thanks for the thoughts! I agree that the background is very "busy" but unfortunately I'm sure that you would agree that you have to take what is offered at the time and photographing Deer is not like a regular "outdoor session" where you can ask a model to stand where the background is best unless you can find them right out in the open like this Red Stag:

You might have tried shooting with a wide aperture to soften the background, but I still love the shot!

Fair point sir and one I'll try to remember! I'll open the aperture right up next time I am up where I usually find the deer as they should be having their young in another month or so!
